New Art Drawing Classes starting March 20, 2018 in Exeter NH



MARCH 20, 2018 Art Class: Learn to Draw the Human Head
Classes held at Seacoast Artists Association, 130 Water Street, Exeter, NH

Have you ever wondered where you go wrong when you attempt to draw a face or a portrait? In this class you will start drawing a real skull, and work you way up to the planes of the face. You’ll practice them in portrait, profile, and 3/4 view. Then we will add the skin, practice types of shading and learn to determine where the light is coming from and how that affects highlights and shadows. Then on to each part of the face: eyes, nose, lips, ears, and hair. Anyone can learn to draw the human head with the tools I will teach you. Learn how the parts of the head reflect each other, and understand how to see faces in a brand new way.
What to bring: A set of 12 drawing pencils (soft and hard pencils), a ruler,  9” x 12” Strathmore 400 Series Drawing Pad, kneaded eraser, white plastic eraser, blending stumps, charcoal, a fine line black Sharpie pen. Minimum class size is 3. Class size limited to 7.
Class starts: Tuesday, March 20, 2018 and runs 8 weeks, 10:30 am~12:30 pm. Fee is $160.00. 10% of the fee is donated to the SAA scholarship fund. A maximum of 7 students will be admitted, so sign up early to hold your spot!

Small Art painted on canvas, with magnets attached on the back.


Being a hanging member, I have art at the Seacoast Artist Association in Exeter NH at all times, some framed and hanging, some Giclée Prints in the bins and a few originals in the bins.

Because it's almost Christmas, I have created some tiny art, 2", 4", 6", that is painted in acrylics on mini canvases, with magnets attached. If you can't find them, ask the gallery sitter to point them out to you. Here are a few of them hanging on my refrigerator!

I also have some free Christmas postcards for you, flyers about my upcoming art classes, and a poster in the window. You can also check out upcoming classes on their website here: http://seacoastartist.org/events/

Let me know if you have any questions!

Finally finished this charcoal portrait of one of my grandaughters

I've started teaching charcoal drawing classes and with that, I have rediscovered how wonderful they are! I did a Corgi a while back and then it was no stopping me! I like toned paper as it gives me a third color to use within the piece. If you haven't started using charcoal, have a try. They can be messy on your finders, but you can just erase your fingers with your kneaded eraser!

Lots of new students!

Well I started new classes last week and they really filled up! I'm re-starting classes with 2 little girls after a brief summer off, I'm teaching my granddaughter who is 8 (once a week), and I will be starting a new charcoal class at Timberlane High School in Plaistow NH, next week. I love all the new students, so eager to learn, and excited about being there. That makes my day! Here's a charcoal piece I finished recently. Enjoy!

Rainy day in August.


My German Shepherd, Tikka, got a great grooming today. She really needed it. It's been a hot summer so far, plus she has learned to dig holes in the back yard. Needless to say, they had their work cut out for them. She now smells like a clean dog and she's looking good!
